I think that Tyrone really does want to become someone in life he just thinks that school wont get him to become what he wants to be. Tyrone loves where he comes from but he just doesn't like what happens around him. His poetry reveals that he does care about somethings and he just want to live his life. The best word to describe how tyrone is feeling is confident. Because to him he doesn't need school he feels that he just need his friends and he just needs to live his life. The meaning of this poem is right there, LIVE YOUR LIFE because the time is tick-tocking.
I can connect with the poem because sometimes i boubt that i need school.
